Question: Can I get a picture of a hypercube

Hi there,

viewing a picture of a hypercube actually doesn't show you much information about its structure. However there are some excellent animations available on the internet, such as at:

(the orginial image is intended to use with 3d-glasses, or press the "Stereo" button twice to disable that feature).

You might also want to check out "Life by the Numbers, Part 1", a PBS special that aired a few years ago. It has a nice (but short) segment on hypercubes, including animated views. You might be able find copies of it at local public libraries.

Hope this helps, Patrick
